Where Does the Vikings RB Corps Rank in the NFL?

The 2021 Minnesota Vikings may have a few questionable spots on their roster — defensive end opposite Danielle Hunter, the speed by which Wyatt Davis climbs the offensive guard ranks, and kicker (of course) — but the running back room is off-limits for criticism.

Currently inhabiting that room? Dalvin Cook, Alexander Mattison, Kene Nwangwu, and Ameer Abdullah.

Cook is considered by most football heads at the league’s second-best halfback, trailing the workhorse Derrick Henry by a whisker. Over the last two years, Cook has tabulated the second-most yards from scrimmage in the business with a total of 3,572 — or 127.
